Forums - Sony Discussion - PS Now: The Netflix Of Gaming Coming To More Regions Of Europe

It's great news. Yet, you don't really need to wait Sony to come to your country to enjoy PS Now, I first suscribed to PS Now back in 2015 while I was in France and wasn't available outside of NA. I think it's the best way to play games through streaming, only 5mb internet connection needed to play, great performance, no issues at all, very great library (I played all 3 Uncharted games through PS Now).

 You are really showing how little you grasp these things or how much you misconstrue facts.

 

  1. Every single time is  for emphasis. But I`ll give you examples where MS either were late "to the party" or dropped the ball so much that it allowed someone else come in and pretty much bully them out of a sector. You can go figure out how in all these cases. Console gaming, Instant Game Library on network services, Steam, Windows Mobile vs Android/iOS, Online game streaming, game developers

  2.  Lol 360..... MS main push with the 360 wasn't about getting exclusives..... it was about taking them away from sony and making games that were usually exclusive to playstation become multiplatform. Which major exclusives did the 360 have outside wht has become the usual suspects? Gears, Halo and Forza.  Everyone knows that the 360 lived and died on it being the primary platform for multiplatforms. The very fact that MS has bought 7+ studios in the last 12 months alone to ramp up exclusive production for the next Xbox should tell you everything you need to know.

  3. And that point went right over your head. The point isn't that the PS4 dominated this gen.... its that Playstation is a much bigger brand than Xbox. And that is made obvious by its ROW performance. That was to tell you that a Playstation game streaming service has a better chance of doing well due to the reach of the playstation brand compared to Xbox.

    Feel free to use the 360/PS3 gens numbers if you want. You will notice that its the same thing, MS does well in one territory in particular and poorly everywhere else.

  4. Lol..... again....potential. when will you learn? When the bigger fish hits the same scene?

    What god has being the bigger fish in everything done for MS? It didn't stop apple, google, playstation, steam.....etc. Or is MS not the bigger fish with regards to resources and whatnot when it comes t consoles, operating systems, browsers.....etc?  

  5. Oh pls...... 

    And Cerny didn't promise 8TF. He said it is capable of ding 8TF of half precision. Which is true. And tht is not why he said it...... sigh nvm, that you even think that makes me see how pointless this is lol. Because anyone with a lick of sense will know that the XB1X can also d half precision too. And it has 12TF of that. So how or why wuld he be using that to dispute something the XB1X can also do?????  

 

Your post is full of so many pot holes I can easily dig out them but ill be here all day, including you basically saying the 360 had barely any exclusives of there own aside from the big 3, that alone puts you in the bracket of "You don't know what you are talking about" and don't give me the "The point went over my head" reply because that's exactly what you have typed.

And you believe that Cerny would come out of no where to throw out 8.4tf number for the Pro close to the launch of the X1X.. especially when it has no baring on the games. you do the maths there but its clearly oblivious why.  And again you are basing this off sales not Potential which to me is the problem. All I have to do is use Nintendo to counter your argument with the Sales graph. Wii sold world wide and dominated the market, next system the WiiU was a giant flop in sales, so by your logic the Switch wouldn't dominate the market because of the failed WiiU.. no different to XB2 having the potential to dominate the world next gen but because of the XB1 it wont. That's not how it works. PS5 could be a giant flop and so could the XB2, we don't know who is going to dominate the market next gen but it seems you have already made that assumption.

I am going to end this debate with you now as we are going around in circles. Ill leave it with we agree to disagree. If you want to continue than PM me.

I suppose it would be possible to download the PS4 games and use them on another account?

Given the content, and the fact you said there were a lot of holes in his points, to be fair, you did not refute many of them. There was an argument against one sub-point and the rest were left open for interpretation.

Just as I suggest in our PMs and such, strengthen the discussion with a bit more follow through. I'm all for the agree to disagree, but if points can be refuted, as you suggested, myself (and others) could learn something out of that rebuttal! :P

Don't know, I mostly played through PS Now on my PS TV when there were no PS4 games (and no download option) so can't tell.

If I can personally point out more than 3 problems with someone's reply which I did on multiple occasions, than its best left alone. I can only see this debate being derailed from the main topic and become nothing more than a He said She said debate and a war of words. 

So in best interest for this thread, I want to abandon it and allow those who want to continue the debate to PM me personally so no one ends up getting banned. And let this topic run its course.
